Layer up and visit the beautifully sculpted ice castles fit for a princess at night, spend the day out snow tubing with friends, take a snowmobile out for a spin through the mountains or enjoy a guided snowshoeing hike.
Indoor WINTER ACTIVITIES: Warm & Cozy
Not much of an outdoorsy person? We get it. It gets quite cold here, but don’t worry, the White Mountains have plenty of indoor activities to take part in too. The Lincoln-Woodstock region has an arts and culture community that focuses on food and drink, theater, and music, making it near impossible to be bored during your stay. Within a 10-minute drive, you’ll find breweries like One Love and Woodstock, and Seven Birches Winery. The restaurants in town have been received awards for their state-of-the-art cuisine and service, and several of those restaurants host regular open mics and live music events. Finish your night relaxing by the fireplace with your family.
